The eyes have it

Our eyes are often the first thing people notice about us, conveying emotion and being the focus of our facial expressions. They can also make us look older and more tired than we feel.

As we age, we develop an excess of skin on the upper eyelid that can make the eye feel heavy, sleepy or smaller. If the eyelids are droopy, fat can be displaced in the under eye area resulting in a puffy or swollen appearance. Fortunately, an eyelid lift is one of the fastest, least invasive surgical options to make us look younger.

At Alpha Clinic, Mr Athanassopoulos recognises that every client has different aspirations, so each operation is a bespoke procedure. The surgery may be performed using a local anaesthetic and the procedure takes around an hour, with the expectation of some swelling over the following week or two. Most patients return to work after a week, looking naturally younger and refreshed. 

There are also surgical options for lower eyelid surgery, which can be used to treat dark circles resulting from shadowing due to bulging fat or bags. Both procedures, upper and lower can be combined for total eyelid rejuvenation. Alternatively, a brow lift can dramatically improve the appearance of the eyebrows, raising the eyebrows to their ideal natural position. Booking a consultation could restore that twinkle to your eyes.   

Alpha Clinic was founded by Mr Thanassi Athanassopoulos. He is one of the country’s most highly qualified and skilled Plastic Surgeons, specialising in facial and breast surgery. He is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at Aberdeen University Medical School and an NHS Consultant.
